I predict that in several months they will decide it wasn’t a fire after all like they did at Grand Gulf and other “retracted events”.

And when will the rest of all the other ones in the country have signs of aging and can not be contained? Then You will take some of that innocuous stuff and bury it in the ground like in eastern New Mexico, not far from Texas. Next what was thought safe won’t be like in that underground facility, because one container was considered not safe anymore. Then workers can’t be in there anymore because it is no longer safe for trucks to drive down delivering more of the bad goods. Then You don’t hear anymore about it, but it all is still there. In the words of “Peter , Paul and Mary: Oh , when will they ever learn? Oh, when will they ever learn ?” Nuclear energy is not safe “alive” and is not safe “turned off”. One underground earthquake can ruin an entire pacific ocean, as we learned from Fukushima, and there seems to be no end to the fish dying from this, and there is no real fix in sight. Creating an “ice wall” , built to contain the problem. Since when can You stop radioactivity with a concrete wall containing ice, or something like that?

I think the ice wall idea was simple window dressing. They know it won’t work but they want to pretend they are ‘fixing’ it. Ice walls are used in storage cavern accidents, not nuclear accidents.
